G1 – Exit Road Test
An applicant for a driver’s licence is expected to know the location, function and how to adjust and operate the Safety Devices. They are generally listed as:
- Windshield wiper switch
- Lights and dimmer switches
- Turn signal switch
- Ignition switch
- Defroster switch
- Sun visors
The examiner should ask the applicant to prove his/her knowledge of the location and operation of these items. Although inability to locate or operate any or all of these items carries only one minor error value, it may also indicate a lack of knowledge of other things.
As a general rule, the applicant should first check to see if traffic
conditions will allow the vehicle to move safely. This should be done by turning the head to ensure the intended movement will not conflict with other traffic. Use of mirrors should also be made but only to assist in the observing action. The examiner’s esponsibility is to let the applicant decide when the way is clear; do not try to rush an applicant into heavy traffic.
The Highway Traffic Act requires a driver to signal all changers of direction, when other traffic is likely to be affected.
